@ The Sunday Experience (strange sounds for freakypeople)
Those of you with reasonably good recall may well remember us cooing over a 10 inch platter by Goggle A that’s currently getting a limited airing on the Green Cookie imprint, seems this garage surf twang loving label have just released a bit of a corker in the guise of an album by Bob Urh and the Bare Bones entitled ’hoodoo garage’. as an added bonus the set is available as a free download for today only – which if your reading this next week was alas 8th January 2014. We’ve had a quick earful of said set and suggest your missing a trick if you don’t take them up on their offer not least because ’pretending’ has a seriously smoked lo-fi aura as though a would be Simon Joyner was channelling some strangely woozy sonic reaction brought on by a collective mixing of Velvet Underground, mid 70’s Stones and Suicide types into a punch drunk lysergic love note that shuffles and stumbles sweetly as though fractured and left a little worse for wear having been refracted through the Bordellos viewfinder. Saying that we here are much smitten by the frayed sly strut blues rumble of ’graveyard shift’ which had us calling to mind an out of it Modern Lovers duelling with Television – don’t get any cooler than that pop kids.
